The eighth Aimee Leduc investigation set in Paris
Aimee Leduc seems to be having a streak of good luck. First, she secures a lucrative computer security contract for her Paris detective agency. Then her ex-boyfriend Yves, the gorgeous bad-boy investigative journalist, reappears in her life. He insists he s back in Paris indefi nitely and wants to make the ultimate commitment. He proposes to her that very night, and Aimee can t help but say yes.
When she wakes up in the morning, though, Yves is gone without even leaving a note. Aimee is irate until she learns the awful truth: Yves was murdered early that morning. Heartbroken and convinced the Brigade Criminelle are not following the right leads, Aimee pursues the mystery behind her fiance s murder. Yves was killed trying to further a cause he believed in. Even if it means putting her own life on the line, Aimee won t let him die in vain."

Review quote

Praise for the AimEe Leduc series set in Paris:
"Compelling. . . . AimEe makes an engaging protagonist, vulnerable beneath her vintage chic clothing and sharp-witted exterior."--"Publishers Weekly" (starred review)
"Charming. . . . AimEe is one of those blithe spirits who can walk you through the city's historical streets and byways with their eyes closed."--"The New York Times Book Review"
"The buzz is partly about her heroine's hip, next-generation, cutting-edge investigations and partly about Paris, a setting of unrivaled charm."--"Houston Chronicle"
"Cara Black books are good companions. . . . Fine characters, good suspense, but, best of all, they are transcendentally, seductively, irresistibly French. If you can't go, these will do fine. Or, better yet, go and bring them with you."--Alan Furst
"Conveys vividly those layers of history that make the stones of Paris sing for so many of us.""--Chicago Tribune"
"If you've always wanted to visit Paris, skip the air fare and read Cara Black . . . instead."--Val McDermid
